Arrghh!  I did this and now bin/arch goes a lot farther, but it still
crashes eventually:

Updating HTML for article 4073
Updating HTML for article 4074
Updating HTML for article 4076
Pickling archive state into /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/mems-talk/pipermail.pck

LookupError: unknown encoding

I presume this is some Asian encoding that's not *supposed* to appear in
